Penny Black Miniatures

Hi peeps, I just wanted to put these few cards on quickly. I know I've been the world's worst blogger, not visiting you all nearly as much as I should, and I'm not going to make my usual excuse about time running away (even though it is) cause I'm sure you're all in the same boat. One day I might get time to just sit blogging, hmmm, how long till I retire?!!!

I'm making a whole batch of these two miniature cards for my daughter to take to work to give to her friends. They measure 3 1/2" square and are so quick to do (I like that). The stamps are both from a Penny Black Critters set, cute ain't they?

I'm really into my Prisma colour pencils again and have been adding loads to my collection, I've only got another 35 to get to have
the full set. I just love the depth of colour you get with them (oops, sorry if I'm repeating myself, I'm sure I've said that before, but it's so true). The little sentiment stamp is one I had from a HoTP TSV I got
from QVC ages ago. It
was just the right size. The base card has a nice linen texture to it. So there you have them, more clean and simple.

Nearly forgot this one. It's another slight variation of my previous Elzybells cards. Just a different layout. The snowflakes I love. I found some fab Diamond Dust Twinklets on Joanna Sheen's website. They give such a wonderful crunchy, sparkly effect to the punched snowflake, I can really recommend this stuff.
